Steelers | Team visits Brooks
Tue, 24 Jul 2007 07:33:07 -0700

John Clayton, of ESPN.com, reports the Pittsburgh Steelers have visited with free-agent QB Aaron Brooks (Raiders).

OMG!! No...no and no!!!
Aaron Brooks is one step beyond "Never was"!!
Hopefully it was an obligatory interview and Brooks is sent on his way.

IMO I think Brooks has some years left in him and would be a good replacement for Batch when he finally decides to retire. That would mean Brooks would be the #3 and I doubt he wants to be a #3 :dunno:

I would support it :bigthumb: I can't blame his performance last year on him because all the Raiders QB's sucked because of their o-line.

Even with the Saints Brooks was prone to INTs and fumbles....Say no to Aaron Brooks.....

It is not like they are signing him to be a starter. He's just a back-up maybe 3rd string behind Batch. I could careless who they sign as a back up as long as his name is NOT:
-Neil O'Donnell


Back ups are back ups. They may not sign him or kepp him for that matter. This is just trying things out.

On Savran on Sportsbeat they just said that this won't materialize and that they have little interest of bringing him into camp.

Thank goodness!!

If I heard correctly the next stop for Aaron Brooks is with the Bengals.
I hope they sign him.

Batch still has a few good years left in him as a backup as long as he stays healthy. If anything BSP should be promoted then I would think...

Brooks is someone I don't want anything to do with.

brooks put up good numbers in NO, not many wins but decent numbers lol. If he wants to be #3 let him wrestle st pierre for it, batch is #2 obviously. Brooks might be somewhat erratic but hes at the very least a good #3 lol

I would much rather see Batch in there if Ben goes down... :2cents:

Charlie's play as a Steeler gives me no reason to doubt him. He's looked good when his number has been called. To be honest, I'm glad he's here.

Aaron brooks would just be a hole in the steelers budget, we would be flushing money down the toilet paying this guy to do anything besides giving the real players gatorade during a time out

And, yes, said Kevin Colbert, the Steelers did bring the former New Orleans playoff quarterback in for a workout last week. Colbert said that it wasn’t so much Mike Tomlin’s Virginia ties that led to the workout, but that the Steelers were simply “interested in a veteran quarterback who’s available.” But Brooks “wanted to explore his options” and didn’t take the Steelers up on their offer to join the team at training camp. Now, it’s too late. “We’re rolling now,” Colbert said. “It’s dead.”

There ya go folks, Brooks turned us down, his loss not ours :banana:

If they wanted a QB they should have drafted:

Troy Smith
Chris Leak
Brady Quinn
Jordan Palmer

and maybe even though he was ok but not the greatest Tyler Palko (from Pittsburgh and played at PITT)

Wasn't Aaron Brooks the guy who once threw a perfectly backwards pass to an offensive lineman?
